TOTW: Not anarchist
Topic of the Week – Here at Anarchist News, we sometimes receive article submissions that are not anarchist, don’t mention the anarchist word, and come from more of a leftist space. Often, these texts mention related words like “radical,” “anti-authoritarian,” “anti-capitalist,” “anti-state,” and “antifa” or talk about subjects that are of interest to anarchists, but not specifically by or about anarchists.
Is there a non-anarchist leftist group that you think it would be worthwhile for anarchists to take note of or one that you follow/work with out of personal interest? How do anarchists avoid the failure of leftism and the reification of social revolt that is ingrained by such things? What is your argument for or critique of the left and anarchists who struggle for leftist ideals?
